44 Huskies Rescued in WI NEED your help!

Tuesday night I heard the dreadful story on the 10:00 o'clock news that 77 Siberian Huskies had been rescued from a couples home in Rock County. They claimed that they were a rescue operation...but the dogs were covered in filth! Many of them had to be shaved down completely because the mats in their coats were so bad. To read the full story and find out more the link below.

Rescued Huskies in WI

If you know of any organzation (IL has taken about 20 of them from the intial total) or person who can help foster these beautiful animals...please contact the Rock County Humane Society in WI.

I'm Free!

That's right...I no longer had to walk on the leash!

Last Thursday was my first day off-leash after my ACL surgery and it was sooooo wonderful! I got to chase butterflies....roll in the lush grass....and roll in some other stuff that my human wasn't too happy about.

I still have a hard time getting up from laying humans say that will probably bother me for awhile...especially with the colder weather on its way.

Now before you other husky owners start howling about me being off-leash...I'll have you know that my humans spent a great deal of time training ALL their huskies to be off-leash. We have always immediately done an about face when they called our name. It takes a lot of time but is very rewarding for everyone. They always tell me that I was a very fast learner and that I should win an award. So.....

I would like to thank the academy, my humans and especially Bon and Yukon...who are no longer with us...they were the best teachers I could have had. I followed their lead and learned so much through them! Thank you! Thank you , one and all for this truly amazing award!
